Wow. What a needlessly hate-filled review. Yeah, the movie sucked, but your gratuitous bigotry just proves that there are troglodytes still living in the 21st century. BTW, lackluster is one word also spelled lacklustre.

A lack luster movie from a lack luster race. The same old "we is always picked on" theme. I guess we will hear that for ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

This movie may not be the ultimate cinematic experience but the fact that Mr. Micheaux was able to use an interracial cast to highlight racism was amazing. Especially in view of the time it was made. For that alone I'll give it 4 stars.

Some scenes in the movie were to dark to view. It's pretty sad the mentality of some folk in those days this movie did have some comedy in spite of the racism the manager showed. The dialogue some characters had was un-believable makes you wonder what the budget was and how many days did it take to shoot.
Sorry not a bookmark for this movie.
